Around 50 people attended the North Lincolnshire Stop the War Coalition European election hustings meeting in Scunthorpe last week.

Speakers from the Greens, Labour, Lib Dems and Tories outlined their policies on the Middle East, terrorism and the role of the EU in dealing with these issues. No2EU sent apologies and a statement of their position.

A lively debate followed which touched on Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the atrocities in Gaza as well as how to stop the BNP gaining an MEP in Yorkshire and Humberside on 4 June.
